long faces this week. no, it was how magnificent romney was and first time obama faced a tough opponent. i mean, his whole life he's been, as he says, as long as you don't make fast moves, look calm, white people love you. by his own account, smoking pot at the university, not particularly applying himself, and manages to transfer to the premier universities in america, columbia, and from there, he rockets to harvard law school, and he's instantly president of the harvard law review, he was president for two weeks, and he wins the nobel peace prize? [laughter] this was the first test faced, and he didn't do well, did he? you see that with stacy dash. liberals -- it's as if i wrote in the book, and that you're going to restore their psychological e e quill lib yum, burning with racist words to dump out landing on west, and dash, liberals, i mean, nothing braver in the world than a black conservative.

romney and the president, you enjoyed that one. that one was the awesome. [applause] tonight's debate between congressman paul ryan and vice president joe biden, that should be a lot of fun. and i would have to say this ann coulter versus whoopi goldberg. i do have to say that was an extremely one-sided in every definition of the term because they would have to bleep out every response just like they did on the view so that would be unfair. what ann is really one word, courageous, truly courageous. [applause] she is willing to use her amazing satirical way to highlight the most important issues of our day. and go describes herself as a polemicist who like sister the pot and does not pretend to be impartial or balanced as our broadcasters do. that is a perfect way to describe it and she is a lawyer. she graduated with honors from cornell university and she is also graduate of the university of michigan loft school and syndicated columnist, author of eight "new york times" bestsellers which once again confirms the ladies of the view are the only ones who have not read her book. they can

[applause] but, you know, a lot of the commentary focused on the nostalgia republicans seem to feel for the golden age. as i describe in my title, and we can say that that is racism or sexism and some of it no doubt is. but i think it's important for us as progressives, those of us here that are progressive i hope we have some republicans, too. i think it's important to think about the golden age was and that there was a golden age for some americans and it coincided with my growing up. i felt like i was the last generation of people to whom the country really kept its promises. although with mitt romney and paul ryan got elected they would break the promise is since just under 55. we will have a chance to break promises to feel like it will be great. but, the golden age when we think about it it really was the result of the great depression and world war ii. it was

state of kansas is former adviser to romney, the man who co-authored the bill. that's an incredible question. it is, like, how did this extremist fringe of the republican party take over the party and become the mainstream, and why is it the other republicans stepped back and the other democrats didn't know how to take them on until somebody like randy came? i think it's a really fundamental question the republicans have to grapple with now with mitt romney and that party. great question. yep? >> i think the democrats walked away from a lot of it, coward, and russell took it, and that's one of the thing i'm stuck on about the democrats, they are so coward, and going by what's -- [inaudible] >> right. that's where we learned theless sop taking down russell was you finally had a progressive element of the democrats who realized they had to buck the party, and then be a bipartisan coalition with republicans to say this is too extreme, and even, you know, they got a republican, as you know, to run against pierce, and pierce couldn't win his own primary this time around. >> [inaudible] >
